'Oz The Great and Powerful': How the magic was made -VIDEO


James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz are the famous faces of the new Oz prequel, but a behind-the-scenes video shines the spotlight on the crew members who played a key part in making the movie’s magic happen.

In this clip, Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) explains how he helped create the whimsical world of Oz, while costume designer Gary Jones describes the process of outfitting the cast and the “joy of working in a land of sheer fantasy.” Special makeup effects artist Howard Berger and makeup department head Vivian Baker also chime in on creating the “big, green, scary witch,” and designing the look of hundreds of background characters.

“Viewers will experience a fantastical world and amazing story,” Franco promises.

Watch the video below to see how the production, wardrobe, and makeup teams used the tricks of their trades to bring the story to the big screen. READ FULL STORY

HSN's 'Oz The Great and Powerful' collection has arrived


First a line of nail polish, then designer dresses, now comes an entire collection of clothing, beauty products, accessories, and home decor items inspired by the wonderful world of Oz.

HSN’s new collection — which is making its debut on the shopping brand’s cable channel right now [ED NOTE: I just got sucked in, thanks to the special HSN Emerald City set, the velvety-smooth voice of French jewelry designer Jean Dousset, and mesmerizing shopping network-speak like, “You’re literally receiving so much stone-work,” from HSN host Callie Northagen.] — includes more than 400 products from HSN designer brand partners like Naeem Khan, Badgley Mischka and Adrienne Landau.  READ FULL STORY

Are stars playing it too safe on the red carpet because they're afraid of fashion critics?

In last week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly (click here to buy the issue), Lynette Rice looked at the blend of style commentary and shtick — the latter mostly provided by Joan Rivers — on E!’s Fashion Police, which has recently enjoyed an awards season ratings boost. Co-host Giuliana Rancic claimed that the show is even influencing red carpet trends, with some celebrities admitting that, “when they are working with their stylists, they have Fashion Police in the backs of their minds.”

Could a fear of winding up on the worst dressed list explain why this year’s awards season style seemed so, for lack of a better word, safe?

At the L.A. premiere of Oz The Great and Powerful earlier this month, we asked Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz if they feel more pressure to look put-together, and whether they think celebrities are judged too harshly for what they wear. Read on to see what they said.


'Oz the Great and Powerful' Fashion Face-Off: Mila Kunis vs. Michelle Williams vs. Rachel Weisz

Last night Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz, who all play witches in Oz the Great and Powerful, followed the yellow brick road (carpet) to the Hollywood premiere of the movie at the El Capitan Theatre.

Kunis chose a sweet lace embroidered dress by Dolce & Gabbana, which she paired with silver Christian Louboutin peep-toes, and added a little edge to her look with a dark nail polish shade and dramatic African ruby and diamond drop earrings by Sutra.

Williams crystal embellished Prada dress looked innocent too… until she turned to reveal a waist-high side split that offered a peek at her black panties. Williams completed her ensemble with Prada t-strap sandals and a Kate Young for Target clutch.

Weisz oped for a bold color, wearing a gown from Victoria Beckham’s Spring 2013 collection (hiding underneath the hem of her garment was a pair of Jimmy Choos). She kept her accessories — a subtle Tiffany & Co. bracelet and Lanvin box clutch — makeup, and slicked back hairstyle simple.

See the designer dress collection inspired by 'Oz the Great and Powerful' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


Designer Sue Wong has created a limited-edition collection of evening dresses inspired by Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful (in theaters March 8).

Wong says her Oz designs are based on a number of the movie’s themes, including the battle between good and evil — played out by witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Glinda (Michelle Williams), and Evanora (Rachel Weisz) — the art deco look of Emerald City, and Dust Bowl-era Kansas. The resulting collection is a mix of femme fatale dresses, full-glamour gowns and whimsical frocks, many embellished with beading, embroidery and appliques.

In 2010, Wong, who has dressed the likes of Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel, created a line of separates inspired by the film Eat Pray Love.

New year, new nail polish tie-in!

OPI has announced that it will release a limited-edition polish set inspired by Oz The Great and Powerful in time for the movie’s release on March 8.

Unfortunately, there’s no rainbow connection — no red to match the ruby slippers (the prequel takes place before Dorothy’s time), no sunny yellow for the brick road, and no brilliant green to symbolize the Emerald City.  READ FULL STORY
